Description

The walking tour starts at the Portón de Campo (city gate), were we will admire the old wall and wooden bridge . Next, we will go to the Calle de los Suspiros (Street of Sighs), a narrow cobbled street surrounded by 18th century colonial houses. The street’s main attractive is the combination of the old houses, the colours and the river view at the end of it. We will arrive on 25 de Mayo Square (Main Square), created during the foundation of the city, from where we will be able to see some beautiful and well preserved Portuguese-style houses: the Portuguese Museum, with remarkable stone walls of 90 cm. width, Nacarello´s House, which exhibits original furniture of the XVIII century, and the Viceroy’s House, whose name surprises because there were never any viceroys in Colonia. Later, we will visit an archaeological site, which was formerly the original Portuguese construction destined for Residence of the Governor, destroyed by the Spanish in 1777. The tour ends up at the Basilica of the Holy Sacrament, which maintains the original design of stone walls and tiled domes.
